Dr. Chatles Coffey saved my life. I had a very rare form of head and neck cancer, and Dr. Coffeys knowledge and care have lead to being cancer free for almost 2 years now. He is a brilliant doctor and an amazing surgeon who will treat you as a person, not just a case file.

If you have a complicated case, insurance that doesn’t make them money or are ever on top of your health more than your doc then this is not the hospital for you. I am only 24 years old and switched to UCSD from Rady Children’s over 3 years ago. I have been so let down and feel defeated. I was misdiagnosed for many months as a child and nearly died because of a doctors inablity to believe they are wrong. Once switched doctors I was diagnosed within days. I have run into this problem again now
